Consolidating tracks? Means taking the output of a track with everything on it, notes, cc, effects etc and recording it to a new track. This opens up a entirely new world. As you can record ARPs/euclid to note data. Bake swing, scale etc to the track, and in essence, use more than 4 effects!
The idea: Loop the output of Pyramid back into the input of Pyramid, so you will be able to record it.
PS! This is very dependat on your personal setup as there are A LOT of ways to achieve this.
My setup is as following: I use a iCM4+ and do mostly all of the traffic on USB. I just took one DIN from the A output of Pyramid and hooked it straight back to the input of Pyramid. Creating a physical loop. Now if I want to “consolidate” a track that outputs to USB channel 1, I simply set that track channel as MIDI A (any channel), create a new track and set that output to USB channel 1. Activate new track and press REC and Play and done!
Why did I not think of this before…
Hope this helps someone
